Our data manager, Kathleen, has been on a breakfast tear these days. Her husband Kevin is currently deployed. Kathleen knows that sitting down as a family to eat a meal is the easiest way to keep her family feeling connected, cared for, and "normal" during their father's absence. She also fiercely believes a healthy breakfast is the best start to the day. Sometimes, her busy schedule as a "single Mom" makes sitting down for dinner impossible so she makes sure her family eats breakfast together everyday. Here's a taste of what Kathleen is putting on her table for breakfast. I'll keep you posted when she shares more of her creations.
So easy! I have them every morning for breakfast, sometimes with fruit, sometimes with breakfast cookies, sometimes solo.
2 cups frozen spinach thawed
1 C shredded cheddar, or cheese of choice. I shred my own to avoid the cellulose
Liquid egg whites (can use whole eggs as well).
That’s it! For this version at least.
I thaw the spinach and shred the cheese. Mix them together. I also add ¼ C nutritional yeast. Spoon the mixture into silicone muffin cups, and top with egg whites. Couldn’t be any easier.
Bake is 350 oven for 30ish mins until the egg sets.
I keep mine in a Tupperware in the fridge, and heat 2 in the microwave for 45 seconds in the morning.
Other additions I’ve tried – avocado (YUM!), tomatoes, turkey bacon (another YUM!). It all depends on what you prefer in your eggs
